    I just had two ugly kids, hahaha. The mailman GAVE me a disbudding iron. If Maa Belle puts out good milk, I can dehorn her future kids for free! I also got FREE breedings on them both! They aren't perfect but they were CHEAP and HEALTHY! They bonded with me in just a few minutes!!!! If I like the milk goat thing, I am buying a small herd from good lines. These sillies should tide me over til then! [​IMG]

    We couldn't afford to buy "really good" goats right now. I prayed for God to send us an affordable couple of does in milk and then less than 3 days later, the guy emails me about these!!! Bay Belle is a baby but Maa Belle is in milk!

    Their fav. foods are privet and bindweed! [​IMG]

    Maa Belle wasn't happy that I interrupted her cud chewing time, hehe.
